IB World Schools Yearbook 2018 now available

It is with great pleasure that we announce the publication of the IB World Schools Yearbook 2018 – 50th anniversary edition. This official guide to schools offering the IB Primary Years, Middle Years, Diploma and Career-related Programmes is now available in print and digital formats.

This year marks the 50th anniversary of the International Baccalaureate and we are delighted to celebrate this milestone with this special anniversary edition. The new Yearbook features profiles of more than 300 IB World Schools and key information on more than 4,700 schools and colleges. The Appendix section presents information on Diploma Programme (DP) subjects offered in 2018, advice on universities that acknowledge the IB diploma, those that offer scholarships to recipients of the IB diploma. 

It includes essential information on the IB and its programmes – including a welcome message from Director General Siva Kumari and Chair of Governors George Rupp. The Yearbook is a hugely important reference tool for all IB World Schools; for the teaching staff, governors, students and their parents.
